Every new hotel room is not taken in with the sweep of an eye but must await a painstaking tapping and groping. I agree with Hull that for the blind, travel leaves a lot to be desired. Until Russell discovered the tandem bicycle, he thought travel boring. " So in Carlsbad I began to feel rising in me an unexpected desire to see the world.
In the shower, I feel like an adolescent discovering my body. I am happily surprised that the proportions are not as bad as I had imagined. My vision still does strange things. I would like to think that the veins and ridges and shiny knuckles on my aging hands are not as obvious as they appear to me now. The hair on my arms and body is not distinct, but looks more like darker splotches. I do not understand why some things seem so sharp to me and others so blurred. I knew the hair on my head had receded, but my forehead looks terribly extended.
